If you are wanting to make up some super cute fast and easy crochet hat ornaments, then stop here! I have the perfect crochet Christmas ornament pattern fast enough for last-minute gifts and perfect to use up all that yarn in your scrap bin.
Every Christmas, I can’t wait to get to the stores to see the beautiful ornaments and decorations on display. And, even though I love them all, especially glittery, shiny ones, I always gravitate to more traditional decorations. My Christmas tree is filled with homemade ornaments the boys and I have made over the years. I love to pull each one out and remember the time spent making them as well as some unique ornaments that have been gifted to me through the years. My tree is like a memory tree, and although not picture perfect by any means – it is perfect to me.
This year I decided I would gift some homemade ornaments to the people in my life that I know cherish handmade gifts. I had quite a few to make, so I came up with mini crochet hat ornament. This mini crochet hat is made from 5 Bulky yarn, so it makes up in just a few minutes, which is perfect considering the dozens I wanted to make.

To make the pompom I used the Clover 1 3/8 inch pom pom maker. Alternatively find anything that is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in width a fork a piece of card board your two fingers! Have a look around for something to wrap your yarn around.
When making the pom poms the more yarn you wrap the denser the pom will be!
This doesn’t have to be exact, but this is how I made mine.
Wind yarn around cardboard 50 times till it is about 1 inch in width. Slide off cardboard and tie yarn around middle as tight as possible. Leave ends long for attaching to hat. Cut all loops and trim pom pom to size and shape desired. Attach to hat.
Last but not least you want to attach a piece of yarn as a hanger – simply pull a piece about 6-8 inches long – tie a knot and trim the end. If you like you can pull the knot to the inside of the hat.
Now repeat the above and make as many of these adorable ornaments as needed, wanted and desired!
Crochet a few up for last minute party or hostess gifts or make a bunch and string them along like a garland. What about making up these little hats in a favourite sports team colours or school colours – the possibilities are really endless. Be sure to go into your scrap bin for this one – this is the perfect project for using up all those odds and ends.
I hope you all had fun making these – let me know – what colours did you chose?
